Saturday before the move!
We SHOULD be madly packing. We WILL be madly packing shortly! Moving or not, life goes on.
Thursday night I visited my oldest daughter in hospital and got home about 10pm. She was supposed to have surgery Friday at about 8:30pm, so I didn’t visit her last night. Eventually she got into theatre at 11:30pm and is now safely home with her hubby! Yay! Mr O took over cooking duties for two nights, which was WONDERFUL!
I started the day at the gym. 30 minutes on the treadmill. 188 calories burned, so it said. I think it calculates higher calorie burn if one is
old more mature.
I tried to snap it scrolling “Lubrication Required” when I finished, but missed it! Several times! Trust me, I DID NOT work out that hard!
I then added 5 minutes on the rowing machine. I haven’t rowed for ages and I have a renewed respect for our rowers competing in the Olympics!
Chest press and some crunches and then home to collect my shopping buddy, Miss O 1. On the way home I saw the current inhabitants of our new home moving out! That was worth a smile!
While Miss O 1 visited the bank, I lodged the mail redirection at the post office. I organised the gas and electricity last week, but the supplier couldn’t find our gas meter on record. The young lady assured me we WILL have gas……. Only the phone/internet/Foxtel bundle to move now. I HOPE there will be no complications!
Off to the Vic Market to slay the fortnight’s meat supply and buy a box, yes, a box, of oranges. $13 for 18 kilos of oranges!
We sort of got a little distracted. Shoes! I got shoes!
Miss O 1 also got some shoes, much brighter and more exciting than mine. We could say “younger” shoes. I’m not sure how she walks in them……. Three pairs of shoes for $90. Not too bad!
The raindrops distort the frame in quite an intriguing way.
This rock garden looked quite effective.
Then Miss O 1 struck a model pose.
We bought the biggest roll of packing bubble wrap I have ever seen!
The boys brought all the groceries in when we arrived home. Miss O 2 helped me put them all away, but this is how it looked when we started! A trail of shopping across the kitchen floor.
Now, cook dinner and start packing. Luckily, given we are not moving far, the only stuff I am packing very, very, very carefully is my dinner set.
That was our day!
